A LITTLE PROGRESS AND SOME MEMORIES

I am still working on hand piecing my tumbler quilt and added 2 more to each row. I am going to stitch about 3 or 4 more rows and then will start joining the rows together. This is not my top priority project right now.Before we leave on a 2 week vacation to Oregon to visit DS#1 & family, I want to get my Polka Dot Girls quilt top put together. I have all the sticheries finished and the hearts machine appliqued. I'm thinking about entering it in a quilt show this summer, but haven't decided yet. I don't think work is perfect enough to enter in a show.
I found this piece of fabric at a garage sale and it brought back sweet memories. I feel pretty sure it is the same fabric that my Mom made kitchen curtains out of for the house we moved into when I was 5 years old. My sister remembers it too, but she thinks it might have been a dish towel. (My sister now lives in the house. My Dad, grandpa and uncles built the house in 1948).
I can't remember what the kitchen counters were like now. That was a long time ago!

Your scrap tumbler is coming along nicely, I really want to make one. The retro fabric is delightful, fancy finding such a good size piece.

Happy Stitching...Ann :)

I came to visit because of the Cheese and Cracker doll quilt link from Humble Quilts. I too admire your Tumbler quilt. I have a lot of fabric, but not enough CW look a likes to do a charm! And the Dutch vintage fabric is so delightful. I see all sorts of possibilities, the color scheme, the motifs...
